system technology staffing. we have all 34.75 positions, only one information systems technology business analyst. that's [speaker not understood]. you've met him at presentations of the annual report, and he is responsible for an incredible number of things. from the hardware, that is, when we replace our pcs or our laptopses, he is the one who installs them. and it is not a simple installation because we have databases that he has to install and customize on computers. in addition to that, he's responsible for creating databases, amending them, tweaking them for interfacing with our consultants such as the project that we have for online complaint filing. he's responsible for our server maintenance and the like. and, so, what i am proposing in staffing is an additional attorney and a new position which is an information systems business analyst assistant. i've talked about the occ's aging cars and how no matter what, they must be retired in 2015. and we use the cars in this case. our chief investigator rolls out to every officer involved shooting and, so, the chief investigator has a ca

? >> some of these things are technology, and some of these things are executive action and some of these things are legislation, the technology is in california, there is a law that says, that all guns manufactured in the state of california have to engage in microstamping, that is a method in which the gun itself leaves a mark on the casing from which the bullet is fired. it is the hammer that strikes the primer and the chamber that the bullets is in when it leaves the gun. it is not enacted at the moment, it is a law, it has to do with the patent and with the technology and so some people will argue about the pros and cons of that. but it just would create evidence that would assist in identifying what gunfired, what round. it would also apply to revolvers. as far as present obama's proposals, he made them this month. some are executive actions and some he is calling for legislation. but he too is requiring asking for criminal background checks for all gun sales and he was going to address that by removing some barriers in health laws that prevent some states from making the i

industry is so afraid of technology is that now we can track this down. before, we would have to go through way bill and everyone's way bill and you wrote down a wc and we have to take your word for it and make a few phone calls and see what happened. now, with the para transit program because it is all completely automated and they use a debit card including our wheelchair customers we know who got into a vehicle, when they got into that vehicle and where they went and how much they paid for it. now we are able to track and we picked up 0 wheelchair customers or you picked up 54 wheelchair customer and now we can track that and this is one of the reasons that many in our industris that been afraid of that technology because now we are able to enforce the standards that were on the books before but no one was able to truly enforce without looking at the hand records that were produced by the driver themselves. >> what we want to do and demonstrate to our drivers and to our medallion holders is simply that, the days of simply driving and doing whatever you feel like are done. what we now wan
dramatic is taking shape here as it relates to particularly the impact of technology is having on the world we're living in. we're living in a fish bowl. the whole idea of holding back information and keeping that information for those [speaker not understood] those in power, those days are over. age of amateurs, big is getting small, small is getting big. this democracy of voices, new contours of a new society, truly i think is being shaped. and, so, you are a big part of that. and i hope the spirit of engagement, civil grand jurors across the state, is respected in that light. as a supervisor, i was a big champion of you. as a marry was a little more cautious because -- [laughter] >> [speaker not understood]. but increasingly, i hope people understand that the roilof a civil grand jury is not gotcha. it's not about taking shots, it's not about exposing people or systems. just for the purpose of
phone industry to work to discuss technology and ways that we can make this a much less attractive option in terms of theft. we have commitment from at&t in california, specifically but we are trying to gather the other cell phone operations companies to work with us to at least make these phones inoperatable and therefore not valuable on the street level. i would note that sfpd did the operation in terms of a defensing operation, supervisor campos you talked about the operation serng a large scale operation where much of the property seized was electronic including cell phones, pdas and tablets so that i think we are working very closely with them to make sure that the people that we catch who are responsible for these crimes are held accountable and take responsibility for it. >> thank you, miss wu. >> colleagues, are there any more? >> i was just going to ask a similar question with ethic and demographic data on victims and perpetrators that you have. is there any age or ethnicity that you see of perpetrators are victims? >> we have not looked closely at that. but i will in spea
are using technology to our advantage and we were able to track the stolen phone from the victim and ap-prehend the individuals who are responsible for 6 robberies and looking into ten additionals. i think that i am optimistic that we can close a lot more of these robberies. >> and do you in terms of who is actually doing these robberies, i am sure that it is a mix. but in terms of a sort of random people who just want money. as opposed to organized, robbery rings, can you comment on who actually is doing these crimes? >> i have not seen it being any organized ring, it is just groups of individuals who see the opportunity or they decide to go on the spree and to decide to start to stealing these phones. >> in terms of then sort of the resale market you mentioned that the department does buy bus on the stolen phones, in terms of a level of organization of where of the market for these stolen phones. i know that i read in the paper that there are some locations where people just offer them on the street. but are there sort of organized resale rings or organizations. they end up everywhere

of an commissioner who pushed through a resolution saying they would never pick or buy any touch screen technology ever, total absolute ban, and these progressive supervisors pushed the reappointment of that person. i want you to understand there is education need for the supervisors to take us into consideration. your advisors to the mayor so you could say "how many are you appointing? why isn't there somebody on the planning commission that is knowledgeable about senior and disability needs? why aren't there someone on the human rights commission?" shocked us to hear there was somebody -- not everybody here understand or worked well with but that person has since left human rights. there are commissions we have understandably a vested interest if not even a formal seat so you can talk to the mayor. what are you doing? as well as talk to your district supervisor. what candidates are you trying to get on the different commissions and boards that the supervisor's appoint? thank you. >> thank you. donna. >> [inaudible] >> oh okay. okay. so we're going to close that part -- no, not yet.
